She’s the definition of DIY diva.

There’s nothing she can’t create including this I can’t believe it’s faux marble painting technique that had me fooled.

  1. I’ve seen her house before and just love it. What caught my attention this time around was the gold/polished brass (may be my computer but I wasn’t sure which way it went… or my eyes after baby’s arrival yesterday!) in the kitchen. It pairs so nicely with the white cabinets and makes it really stand apart from other white kitchens. I also love the bathroom’s space. The first few pics of the furniture are nice too, I love how she kept some wood tones in her house. Just beautiful!

  2. I love Diane’s style and creativity! Her blog is one of my all time favs. I admire her style the most and have gained so many great ideas for decorating on the cheap and have used some of them!

  3. Lost for words. I NEED a craft cabinet like that… And the wrapping paper roll holders on the wall… Genius! Definitely going to be having a closer look at this one and all the links. Thank you!

  4. I looked at every single link (almost). What I thought was going to be a nice little read through became my obsession for the evening. How does this woman know so much, and how did she get into my brain and create half of the things on my DIY wish list? I love Transom windows, and even last night saw one on a show we were watching and was longing for one somewhere in my home. What a genius idea! I am also stealing that roller shade photo area. I need it on a big scale for furniture, but how lovely it would be to have a ready made photo area instead of searching for the right spot around my home every time. This is my favorite home tour by far. You bring the wine, I will bring the Diet Pepsi, I am heading over to Diane’s!
